Arthur Lee Royster was born in Richmond, Virginia, in 1949 and reborn in Boston in 2009. He moved to the city to rejoin his sister Shirley. She and her in-laws took him in. Arthur found a job in food service at Boston University and joined Grace Church of All Nations in Dorchester. He was an eager participant in a monthly floating card party where bid whist is the main game on the second Saturday night each month. He loved to play pinochle even more and taught others the card game. On April 7, 2013, Arthur Lee Royster died at home in Dorchester, four months after being diagnosed with liver cancer. His remains were cremated.
